U.S. Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA, has reintroduced legislation that would reinstate sanctions that President Trump placed on the Iran-backed Houthis group and redesignate it as a foreign terrorist organization.

According to the Pentagon, these missiles were potentially heading toward targets in Israel.
